Welcome

Welcome to the Matlab CAPE-OPEN Thermo Import. This is a Matlab package that allows you to import and use CAPE-OPEN version 1.1 thermodynamic Property Packages inside Matlab, for thermodynamic and physical property calculations as well as thermodynamic phase equilibrium calculations.

This package does not implement any thermodynamics; it is merely the glue between existing CAPE-OPEN version 1.1 Thermodynamic Property Packages and Matlab. Various CAPE-OPEN thermodynamic Property Packages are available. For example, the free CAPE-OPEN flowsheet simulator COCO comes with a Property Package Manager called TEA.

Getting started

If you did not register the CAPE-OPEN Thermo Import tool with Matlab during installation, you can do so by running "Register with Matlab" from the start menu. This step is also required after installation of a new version of Matlab. This registration step will add a command to the pathdef.m configuration file.

A quick reference of commands is available by running
help capeOpen

This help file contains the full documentation. It can be started from Matlab by running
capeOpenHelp()

Requirements

Matlab version 5.3 or higher must be installed and running on your system.

Matlab CAPE-OPEN Thermo Import allows for using CAPE-OPEN version 1.1 thermodynamics. It will therefore only cooperate with CAPE-OPEN thermodynamic Property Packages that support this CAPE-OPEN version.
